Postcard from Verbier

We had a few sunny days in Verbier last week, unfortunately we did not have enough time for skiing, but we still had some time to enjoy the ambiance in this alp village.

We were in Verbier for project meetings as we are working on the Away spa for the W hotel, which will open December 2013. It will be the new hot spot in Verbier and the location for the hotel is perfect, just by the main ski lift, right in the center. I won’t reveal any details about the spa or the concept, except that it will be unique and different!

The hotel will feature a 122-room five-star hotel managed by the Starwood group, as well as apartments and lodges. The “W Verbier” will be W Hotels’s first ski retreat. W Hotels is an innovative luxury lifestyle brand and a hotel group with properties in the most vibrant destinations around the world.

The Away spa will certainly change the spa and wellness market in Verbier. As it is today, there are no larger spas with wet areas, treatments, fitness etc. Most of the “spas” are small and more like beauty salons. In Verbier you can also find a great number of freelance therapists who will offer treatments in the privacy of your chalet or hotel room. There are also a few very luxurious private chalets in Verbier with their own private spas (pool, treatment room, saunas and private therapist), but to access these spas, you obviously will need to rent the whole chalet…

So, we are convinced that the Away spa will fill the gap on the spa market in Verbier and be a true alpine escape!

Wish that I could spend the coming Easter holiday in Verbier, but I will he heading up north instead, to Finland…see you again next week
